Spring Thanksgiving

I have always wondered why we only do Thanksgiving/Christmas meals only once a year.
After making my 1st turkey for Christmas I made the decision that I was definitely doing it more than twice a year.
So out went the invites to the family and in came the people and the yummy side dishes!
For obvious reasons I did this, to spend time with family, to eat great food, lots of food options and plenty of left overs.
I also realize now why this shouldn't be done this time of year... the food.  Lots of it!

Eating loads in November/December is no big deal, it's winter!
With bikini season coming up, let's just say I am not having a "Thanksgiving" meal until November!

It was great fun though, I absolutely love my family and I am taking every possible chance to see them and get to know them better since I have never had the opportunity to spend this much time with them.


  1. Becca and John,

    Good food. Good treats. Great company!

    You know, I am very fortunate to have you as a cousin. You are truly a great person. I enjoy your positive energy, your thoughtfulness and how you put a strong emphasis on family. These are very important traits to have. It's not often I meet someone as young as yourself, that has this figured out. I guess Uncle Dougie and Aunt Catherine brought you up right.

    Keep up the good work. Continue being a Good Mother and wife. Follow your dreams. And keep reaching for the stars. (and always remember to keep a little Jamaican in you!)

Beautiful Baby Shower

This past weekend was our baby shower!!  We decided to do it a bit early because I am one of those over-organized, over-prepared types.  It was hosted by my best friend Kindle and my sister Bianca.

I told Kindle I wanted a slight winter wonderland pink theme since it is so close to Christmas and this is what I walked in to!
It was absolutely beautiful, and we were joined by all our best family and friends, we appreciate everyone that made this such a special day for us.

 This game was to guess how big I was and believe it or not the winner was Ethan!!
He definitely knows his Mummy!
 The chocolate diaper game. (It was Johns first shower, he must've thought we were all crazy).
 Getting ready for presents!! (The boys got to open them all).
 Kindle surprised the boys with a gift each.
It was a shirt with their picture saying "I'm the biggest Brother" and "I'm the big Brother" for the hospital.
Most thoughtful thing ever!!!
I wish I could relive this day over and ov…

Our Garden

I have promised the kids that once spring came around we can plant a garden since in our top back yard we have 2 big beds.
It was s a lot of work to clean out the beds it was full of debris that took us a long time to sift out, but it was oh so worth it!

I wish I had before and after pictures to show you just how bad it was, but I didn't think about it because I was in full on mission mode.

We still need to plant the second bed, it has been a bit rainy, and to be completely honest I am terrified of worms, caterpillars and snakes.

My community Facebook page has been posting about copperheads everywhere so I am hyper paranoid when I am out there, but I hope to get around to it soon!

Settling Into Spring

Georgia has been absolutely beautiful for spring so far.
I love almost aspects.
The blue skies, the greenery, the flowers, being outside, having our waterfall back on, nights outside and so much more.
I noticed today that my seeds are starting to sprout in our garden and that makes me incredibly excited and proud. I even love the rain and the storms, every thing is so cozy and not cold!

And best of all, having friends and family to enjoy it with.

The parts we could do without is the pollen and i85 going up on flames.
